NEWS and Blog Candy!!

Have you heard about the newest planet in the solar system?

It’s called "Paper Craft Planet" and all the inhabitants are just like you…devoted lovers of all things papercraft-related. Paper Craft Planet is an online community for papercrafters that is filled with many familiar faces and a stellar amount of inspiration where we share tutorials, videos, photos, and links to all things paper crafting! Susanna Boyd, of Card-of-the-week.com fame began this awesome site, and the community is growing!* (I don't have as much time as I'd like to check blogs so I always really look forward to and appreciate seeing a kind of "Best of/Cool Things" posted all in one spot!) I've been SO honored to have several of my projects recognized on her "Best of the Week", "Tutorial" and "Shout Out" Lists these past several months, so I was just thrilled when Susanna asked me to join the Papercraft Planet Design Team!! YAY!!! I am really looking forward to getting to know and working all the other talented designers (incidentally, there are a few peeps I'm already very familiar with, check and see whom!) So, why not stop by for a lot of fun, weekly challenges, PRIZES, an awesome gallery, tutorials, videos, and a budding design team as we share this craft we all love. Just click on this link above to be transported to a crafty place that's out of this world!


NOW!!! It's been awhile since I've given away any candy: join PaperCraft Planet today** (Tell 'em Melanie sent ya! ;) and let me know here, you'll be entered for a chance to win a bottle of Odorless Mineral Spirits and Blending Stumps OR an assortment of 6x6 Basic Grey DP from several different yummy print packs! And there are MORE ways to earn more chances, each way will get you one entry:


1) link this post on your blog and let others know about the community and the candy! (and leave a comment here letting me know with your link)


2)Email me for code to add the cute little "PaperCraft Planet" member Logo to your blog!


3) Upload pics of your projects after joining to help grow the gallery!



Winner of the candy announced here Thursday11/6! Our first official sketch challenge, hosted by Susanna, will be posted this Saturday 11/8, I hope everyone will come out to play!


*but it's still got that homey, small- town feel, where "everybody knows your name", I love that!

**already a member? just let me know in the comment section, and you'll be entered!

Hi! I went over to sign up at PCP. What a great looking site. Thanks for the heads up. I need to get a Blog going so I can sign up to win more often. Thanks for the chance to win.

Stampmouse said...

ok I joined and even posted some cards although I have to say that was a painful process the site is sluggish on that. I did notice another way to do it that said it was easier but didn't try it out yet.

posted on my blog about your blog so hopefully the news spreads

Aimee said...

oh I'm up and running over there...

thinker said...

I just joined :)

Nancy said...

PCP sure made a great choice by asking you to be one of their designers! ;)

I joined yesterday (of course you already knew that) but didn't know exactly where to tell them that YOU sent me. You know how it is at my house... just when I get a chance to go online somebody needs attention and I have to leave... makes it so hard to stay focused! LOL

So email me (if you like) and give me a link as to where I can go and shout that I'm so honored that YOU invited me. ;)

Donna said...

I visited "the Planet" and discovered I was already a member but couldn't remember my password. So now I have a new password and I'm ready to go. Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies!

Sharon in NE said...

Yes! I'm a member and what fun it is...but now I have to stay focused on work and stop running over there to check on things!

Sharyn said...

for heaven sakes, when do you guys sleep? I can read, learn, view and search for hours each day and still don't get to the bottom!
Please keep it up and be proud that you need less rest than everyone else!
